we hear from this administration is that the new secretary of state john kerry will be staying behind, will circle back to jerusalem on saturday night, meet with netanyahu and his people and try to reinvigorate it. so there was that attempt. we're seeing reports that abbas, the palestinian leader, is now willing to forego his requirement that a settlement freeze exists and be declared by netanyahu openly before any peace talks resume. it seems as though the palestinian stance is softening. but it is not front and center. the president tried to put it there today while at the same time delivering what i think israelis wanted to hear about iran and about syria. >> jamie, andrea brings up a good point, that abbas has, in a sense, reached out and said, okay, we will consider this aspect of things. how key is that to starting any sort of peace talks again? >> well, that has been the block to actual meetings. the palestinians have said until there's a settlement freeze, the position that the united states had taken as well that andrea referred to, until there is such a freeze, then there wo

of state, john kerry, the vice president, joe biden, who also have to answer for their role in this. people like wolfowitz, cheney, rumsfeld, should not be given any kind of honor in this society. they should be held accountable for the u.s. soldiers that were killed and i think it's many more than 100,000 iraqis that were killed. >> i'm sure. mike, former bush speechwriter david frumm has written a column in which he reveals long conversations held in 2002 with dick cheney. according to frumm, the two men talked less about promoting democracy and how iraq might become a source of oil to the united states. mike, was cheap oil really at the heart of this invasion? >> you know, i wouldn't go that far, martin, but i would say that fears that the persian gulf could be disrupted by saddam and oil, therefore, become much more expensive were certainly part of it. i'm not a huge fan of most of the folks from the bush administration, myself. but i do think that someone like dick cheney did not fundamentally seek to expand american influence, you know, imperialistically or go for big oil profits for

. is there anything that comes out of it stsubstantively. >> john kerry went back to meet with netanyahu. probably the best thing that can happen is we don't see any large summits convening public displace and there's hard work of diplomacy going on behind-the-scenes. i think john kerry is putting this at the top of his agenda for his at the entrepreneur as secretary of state. the president has given him the political push to do it and i think if we don't read or see big public displace then quiet diplomacy behind-the-scenes is what should be going on. >> mahmoud abbas basically saying, you know, so the idea is how can we restart negotiations. right now the netanyahu government says we should begin direct negotiations right now. let's talk. the p.a.'s position is there has to be a settlement freeze. the israeli government can floij secretly he'll stop settlement activities during the period of negotiations, referring to president netanyahu of israel he doesn't have to announce i want as a way much threading the needle. his political base will go crazy if he announces a settlement freeze. a settlem
